Event Information:

This online conference will focus on the increased need to invest more into flood prevention – as we delve into the development and construction of defences, innovative solutions and how the industry can help tackle climate change.

As a country well known for its wet weather conditions, flooding affects over 5 million people every year. The government have recently announced a record £5.2 billion investment into the construction of flood and coastal defences, with innovative projects focused on sustainable drainage systems and nature based flood solutions in the pipeline.

This conference will show how the country is preparing for the increased potential for flooding following climate change, and the strategies being implemented to ensure flood damage is kept to a minimum through associated infrastructure and other strategic projects. Topics will include:

  • Best practice shared amongst sector stakeholders
  • Dive into the £5.2bn investment from Government
  • Overview of Environment Agency’s future work
  • Strategic overviews from numerous councils
  • Scotland’s £88m flood defence scheme for Hawick
